Q&A: Sherman talks about his pledge

Allen (Texas) High offensive lineman William Sherman became the Buffaloes' 17th commitment from the Class of 2017 on Tuesday. Below is a Q&A with the latest prospect to join the herd.

What was it like making your college decision?

William Sherman: “It was really exciting, and extremely easy.”

When you say it was extremely easy, was that because your trip out to Colorado last weekend showed you something?

"Definitely, yes sir. Before I heard from the coaches a lot and they were talking about 'The Rise.' And when I went on my unofficial visit, I definitely got to see what they were talking about. And then meeting all the recruits, we just bonded. I already feel like family with all of them, and with the coaching staff. I really do feel like we could take over the Pac-12 here at Colorado."

Was there anything about the BBQ event that was better, worse, or different than you expected?

"I didn't really know what to expect, but I realized during it, I realized it just felt like home."

Colorado was the first to offer and then you added 14 more offers. Did the Buffs' early interest play into your decision?

"I actually hadn't thought about that but they did show the most love throughout the whole process and Coach 'Chev' (co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach Darrin Chiaverini), he is a real genuine, humble and down to earth guy that I can really trust. The same with [offensive line] coach [Klayton] Adams and [head] coach [Mike] MacIntyre."

What do you feel you will add to the Colorado program when you join it next year?

"Something that they really need on the offensive line. We have three really big offensive line commits right now, with me being the third. And hopefully we can get Casey Roddick to be the fourth, and then we'll be set."

What is your current height and weight?

"6-foot-4, 290-pounds right now."

Colorado projects you as an offensive guard, correct?

"They actually said they weren't exactly sure where I will play yet."

What position at Allen will you be playing this fall?

"I'll be starting at right tackle but I'll probably be playing all over like the last two seasons."

Do you have any goals for your last year at the high school level?

"Yes sir, break the Allen pancake record of, I think, 30, which was set by Tejan Koroma; he is at BYU now."

Do you know how many pancake blocks you had as a junior?

"Last season I had 17, I believe."
